    Wonder if he'll get the same criticism as CNS for his denial and then reversal...

    Posted this in the other Kelly thread but just so everyone can see it, here is the story.

    No, this isn't an older post we accidentally published: the Eagles have, on Wednesday, January 16, 2013, hired Chip Kelly away from Oregon, CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman confirms.

    I'll count that as news. Oregon call his bluff maybe?

    He might run a gimmick offense, but I'm still glad he's gone. They were a threat to Alabama, but now it's a lot harder to imagine that.

    I was thinking the same...imo won't be long before he's looking for another job in college. the eagles are a mess, and every team in the NFL has speed, it's not college anymore where you can just recruit the fastest. look at LaMichael James now, not anything more than a situational 3rd and long back.


    good news for Bama! Oregon is hiring within, surprising they wont look for a big name

    Unless, CNS goes to Oregon or Cleveland.

    He might just b/c Oregon is a higher profile spot than the Dolphins. But CNS is CNS and he'll always have the haters out there as long as he is successful.

    Personally, it's worse to reverse on a college kid (where some kids now might have to scramble to find a new college to sign with or returning players can't declare for the draft or look to transfer). The NFL is a business and players expect a lot of coaching movement so it doesn't them nearly as much as a college or college-bound kid.

    Chip Kelly is a Medford man. Up in Medford, Oregon they take their time making up their mind.

    I actually do expect the media to blast him more than CNS because of the team he's spurned. CNS left the Dolphins; only Dolphins fans or CNS haters (who'd hate him regardless) still bring that up. Kelly is leaving a very prestigious program in a worse way than CNS left. Kelly better enjoy the NFL b/c credibility is going to be a BIG issue if he ever comes back to college.
    Wrong Kelly
